Thank you so much to all of the families that have contributed to the annual appeal. Due to your generosity, we have raised $41,400 in Annual Appeal, and $6,280 in Matching Gifts so far this school year.
Our goal is to receive a donation of any size from 100% of PS 89 families. We are suggesting a donation this year of $1,400 per child. Please consider donating that amount to the Annual Appeal to ensure that we can continue funding to the extent we have in previous years. However, please remember that no donation is too small.
If you need the school's EIN# please send an email to Team Treasurer:
Stacy Francis, Amy Hughey or Samantha Roberts
